2008 Suzuki King Quad 750 axi steering problem

Recommended Posts

I have a 2008 Suzuki King Quad 750 axi. I have a problem with the machine over steering. I purchased it used, it had hit a tree and was rolled. Everything is now back in place and there does not seem to be any damage left. But the machine is incredibly hard to handle as any minor movement in the steering results in major over steering. The steering also has a very light feel, meaning it takes very little effort to turn. Making one hand driving almost impossible.

Does anyone know if this is a common symptom of a crash that involved a front wheel damage? Is there an adjustment on the steering that could help resolve this issue?

Just like in a car, if the wheel alignment is way off, it could make it more difficult to steer. Is the front end loose at all?

Agreed, check the tie rod ends, wheel bearings and ball joints for any play and check the wheel alignment. If the wheels are toed out too much, it can cause problems similar to what you are describing. A tie rod adjustment will usually fix that, as long as there is no slop in the joints or wheel bearings.

I have this same PROBLEM! I have a family member that just rolled it because of the over steering at a low speed because it just takes off on you and you have to muscle it back into place. the steering is crazy easy and makes riding with one hand just a after thought.  I need to find out what causes this. They did end up in the hospital with stiches and laid up for 2 weeks over it. Im a bike mechanic and cant find the problem. everything is tight and straight! I even put new rims and tires on it.  Anyone have anymore IDEAS?????????

I did some searching on this and it turns out a lot of people  have  similar  problems  with the King  Quads  from  2008 up to  at least  2014..  Consensus is it  is a caster problem that there  are  expensive  after  market A  arms available  to  fix. Suzuki   refuses to  admit  there  is a problem with them.

One    far  less expensive solution suggested is to  add a steering  stabilizer.  Some  have  and said it  helped considerably, but didn't entirely  eliminate  the over-light  steering.

I  would suggest  to  all Suzuki  owners with the  problem  to  deluge them  with  complaints.  Maybe  those who  have been  injured  because  of the  hairy  steering could  wake  Suzuki up  with   a  lawsuit because it seems to be  a  pretty common  complaint  that    aftermarket  knows   about  and offers  solutions  Suzuki  should  offer themselves.

      I bought my big bear in 2009, never had a bit of problem with it until last year. It quit starting but still would click when I tried to start it. I replaced the solenoid, the cdi module ( it was burned on one corner) and this year replaced the battery. I have all lights but still will not start and I do not have the clicking when I try to start it. Can anyone give me any ideas what to try next? I haven't had any luck finding videos about the 2008 Big Bear. I'm trying to avoid the expense of sending it to the shop.

      Hey all new to the forum.... We ended up picking up a 2006 Suzuki z50 quad sport and took it camping this weekend. The guy said had a new top end and just put on a new belt. Seem to work fine for a little bit and then it lost power at the rear wheels. Belt was not in bad shape took a look but it just did not seem to have enough power to get my little guy moving. I pick up the rear end tires would go. Set it down lacked all power.   Any help would be greatly appreciated it did run like a top also.      To add to the bad news on the way home I ended up losing the seat so if anybody has one even if it's in rough shape would love to get it or if you have any ideas open to suggestions......

      doesn't idle at times but sometimes when it does as soon as I touch the throttle it just shuts off, what could possibly be the problem? I thank you very much for any help, Thanks.

      Hi all,
      Picked up my first Brute Force yesterday. What should have been an awesome afternoon of riding turn a bit into a deception. As I was unable to really take it out for a test drive at the shop, I decided to buy it and agreed that I would take the test drive at home. 
      When giving full throttle I noticed that the Brute was choking and lost all of its powers. Faulty fuel pump most likely. 
      Called the shop and the are coming to pick it up and repair it and bring it back. Good service. Nevertheless feels a bit sour in the mouth as I was told it was a 100% good. 
      Need to have some patience I now before I can really start riding.
